Carved From A Block of Chrome

Here are two products destined for production. The Chiseled and U-Turn faucet concepts come to us by way of  Design Jordan. I love the contrast between the abrupt sharpness and the organic nature of water. Too often I see these esoteric faucet designs that look stunning on their own but would look terrible in most homes. These concepts are what I call reachably futuristic.

The “Chiseled” concept is the first of a high-end bathroom/kitchen faucet range designed as if carved out of a block of chrome. The wide base, extended neck and rear-mounted handle provides a dynamic profile reinforcing the stealth-inspired sharp edges and flat facets.

The “U-Turn” concept is a high-end bathroom & kitchen faucet range designed around user need, incorporating bathroom items or providing additional features for personal objects. The bathroom sink model provides a recess to safely place rings while washing hands. The multi-purpose “U-turn” features a precast opening to place toothbrushes or other accessories like a customized liquid-soap dispenser.
The larger kitchen model includes an easy-access removable soap/sponge dish mounted on a rotating spout. The “U-turn” tip provides grooves to hang gloves, a watch or other personal accessories.

Would you buy one? They’re supposed to hit the international market… now.

    They both look kind of scary… :). But I can definitely see them working in the right setting.

    love them, esp. the second one, which reminds me of the waterfall house

    Carved out of a block of chrome (?!) doesn’t make sense (even if `chromium’ was meant). Likely carved out of steel and then chrome plated on the outside as some forms of chromium are known carcinogen.

    Meh. I prefer not to stab my own eyes out while in the bathroom. The little tray for your rings on the second design is clever, but I could see dropping your rings right down the drain trying to balance them on a tiny little platform atop the faucet. Meh.

    I too was thrown a little by the name.
    the chroming process is extremely harmful to the environment. Do you want these perceptions attached to your product? But hey what a great chance to render some shiny metals!

  • i am faucets designer, most of the taps are chrome, while harmful to the environment.
    are good ideas, but i think could be refined.
